By far the best comedy club in the area. We try to come here at least once a month. They typically do meet and greets at the end of the show. Opportunities to win free tickets too. Good location, good size club, good crowd. Always a great time at Side Splitters!!

Love going to this place. Been going on a fairly regular basis and service has always been good along with say 95% of the comedians. Definitely a good affordable night out.

Received zero service from the wait staff during the Alonzo Bodden show. Comedians were hilarious. Front bartender was friendly and perfect at his job. They definitely let a couple hundred dollars slip through there fingers that night. Shamefully poor service during the evening’s performance. Literally no service of any sort, whatsoever.I would recommend going to Yellow Springs, OH for a show at Dave Chappelle’s farm, rather than a show here. Much better experience than receiving no food or drinks for 3 hours.

We’ve been there a few times & had a good time. Small venue but big laughs from some great local & national talent! Lots of people from late night talk shows & AGT runner’s up which makes it a great evening. Food & drinks are reasonably priced & wait staff is friendly & attentive. We enjoy a great date night here or they can accommodate larger groups. - Tracey Hedges

I was pleasantly surprised by this club compared to larger national chains. Very laid back. Great staff. Nice space. I prefer this now to everywhere else. Im now going to broaden my horizons and visit smaller, local clubs.

We were told that staff would wear masks, but there were few when we got there and no distancing. They acted like there was no pandemic. We just left, took the financial loss. We wont be back until theres a vaccine.

Went last night to see Tim Dillion in the flesh. Everything was great, atmosphere was very fun Glad to see a sold out show on a Tuesday! Service and host was great as well. Everyone needs a place like this to come and laugh and reset from this crazy world. Look forward to returning in the future

Great comedy club! Saw hypnotist Rich Guzzi! He was great! We were entertained the whole time. We went out to dinner before the show so we didnt eat anything but they had a lot of great snack options, sandwiches and deserts. Next time, we will eat there or have an early dinner and order snacks there!

Felt very safe and followed all the guidelines! Staff and menu options, incl non-alcoholic and healthy options, were fantastic along with an amazing performance by Tim Dillon

Disappointed that the MC made the point that you are lax with your mask rules. Phase 3 doesnt mean you shouldnt be wearing masks indoors. Soo many people entering the building with no mask or immediately taking them off even when not eating or drinking. The comedy was solid, but I have to leave a lower star review because it felt like you were FLAUNTING a disregard for health and safety of guests. Cant say I would go here again until this whole thing is over.Edited: upped to 3 stars because your waitstaff and bartenders were very nice and attentive.

Service at “half capacity” should have been way more attentive. Half capacity, btw, was suspect.. almost all tables were filled. Comedian was super hilarious. Had a great time regardless of staff issues..

Went to see JP Sears on Sunday. The comedy was good, but given that we in Florida just opened back up from COVID restrictions, they had the place packed to the gills. There was no way to social distance. The audience was on top of each other and sharing tables. No one was wearing a mask (except for the staff) because there was food and drink. Im aware I made a choice to go out in the public and see the show, but I do not feel that Side Splitters even took minor precautions to keep anyone safe from spreading the virus. I also understand that many, many businesses are struggling to recover from the effects of coronavirus restrictions. However, Side Splitters really should remove a few tables and seats to allow for more room. I know that can cut into the bottom line, but I would have been happy to pay a little bit more for the show to be a little bit safer.

Saw JP Sears stand up comedy show this evening and it was hilarious!I did not see any signs or notices posted about a mandatory drink purchase policy. Poor service. I ordered nothing and was continually asked to place an order. Disruptive from the reason I came to this venue: to see a comedy show.

It has been years since weve been to this club and I forgot how much fun it is. We even went when they had a not as famous comic performing. He was very funny and the club being smaller gives it the feel of a more personal show. Even the drinks were good!

Looking for something fun to do in TAMPA thats not downtown? I highly recommend you take in a Comedy Performance at Side Splitters. You can pre-order tickets online and choose your table/seats. If you want to just drop by, there are usually tickets and seats available the night of the performance.There are 3 - 4 Comedians who perform with varying skill sets. The last entertainer is usually the most experienced and funny.You can find coupons for admission discounts. There is a 2 drink minimum per person. One person in our group does not drink so, she ordered a bottle of water and red bull, which she took home. Nice selection of specialty drinks. They always offer a bucket of beers at a discount.Just a heads up, no topic is off bounds and there WILL be swearing ;)

The tables are small & crammed close together. Our waitress, Allison, took great care of our group. The first round of drinks takes a long time because everyone at the show orders at the same time, but she kept the following drinks flowing. All 3 comedians were excellent. A good night out.

As a venue I was extremely pleased with the service. For a full house on a Thursday night the servers were so fast. And I enjoyed everything I tried. I also liked how the exit is an easy out so people don’t get crowded after the show

Absolutely hilarious great time money well spent. Boyfriend is a skeptic but boyfriend loved the show. Great food great drinks great comedians. Great prices especially if you go on Groupon and get the tickets from there. They also give out free tickets once youve come and seeing your first show and fill out your comment card they call you and give you free tickets weekly and monthly.

Fantastic. Packed house. Parking was a bit of a circus as the location sits in a mall of other businesses. Lobby entrance was maxed, standing room only. Seating for the show was delayed. Seating also tight. Prices are high moderate, but as expected for a live show. Two item minimum. Service was very fast and accurate. Act was excellent !!

This comedy club is always a great place to hang out at. The comedians are always funny, the club is kept clean, and the wait staff is always friendly and prompt. If you want to eat dinner prior to the show, there are many restaurants to choose from in the nearby area. I look forward to to visiting Side Splitters again soon!

Review №62

We have been coming her for years and it never disappoints. We have been asking some friends to come for months and finally they agreed and this was the perfect time for them. We went for Samual Comroe and and the 2 comedians had us four crying for the whole time. The mixed drinks on the other hand not the best.I gave this place 5 stars because I go for the comedy and they have only had one bad comic

Review №63

This place is Super fun. You can reserve seating to ensure you get a good spot, but honestly there entire seating area gives you a good view. There is a bar outside of the main room, so if you arrive early you can have a drink. There is usually a min. of two items purchased per show (food counts but is pricey), and any drinks purchased at the bar do not count towards the item count. They could probably use a few more servers too, as service was pretty slow. Each server seemed to have too many tables, and it took a while for things to come out. Overall a great night, just stay laid-back about any wait times and youll have fun.

Steve Trevino was HILARIOUS, as usual. Service was great. It was pretty crowded but the waiters did a great job getting around to everybody and making sure we got what we needed. My husband ordered coffee and they forgot to bring it, our waiter came over apologetic, and brought us the coffee, along with bottomless popcorn at no charge and a coupon to get in free because he forgot to bring our coffee the first time. We had a great night and will absolutely be returning!

Review №71

We saw five comics when we went. The first four were decent and the headliner was hilarious! Atmosphere is clean and nice.Price was only $10 a ticket. Plus you had a two drink minimum. But the drinks were reasonably priced.I deducted a star because the tables were tiny. We had a table of four and I felt like we were sitting in each others laps. Very close quarters. None of us are obese. :)Also, there were only two stalls in the womens restroom so there was a very long line after the show. Go during one of the opening acts.All in all, Im glad we went and would go again.

The comedians were funny and I had a great time. The only issue is it was busy and it took the server a long time to get. Back to the table. They say it is a two drink minimum but by the time the server got back when I ordered the next drink she said last call was already over.

Friend, Id like to save you about $60. There is no parking, and when you call to ask where the parking is supposed to be, they put you on hold (their hold music is that we hung up on you silence) Servers are quick to aggressively enforce the 2 item minimum, so we ordered soft pretzels and a few drinks. Having come directly from dropping off a child at the sitters, I can say with confidence that the wet texture of that pretzel was perfect if you were wiping it off a toddlers butt. I almost mentioned this to the server, but she was back at our table telling us less than an hour into our hour and 45 minute show that she needed us to pay the check for the other item we were required to order. Had the mixed drink had more alcohol in it, I probably wouldnt have noticed any of that. The one star was for the headliner comedian who probably made it out of there sans pretzel, lucky guy.
